You'll be surprised how quick and easy this bread is to make!
Olive Bread
1 1/2 cups pimento-stuffed green olives
1 1/2 cups pitted black olives
2/3 cup skim milk
1 large egg
4 cups all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons margarine, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 packages Rapid Rise yeast
2-1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup warm water (125° - 130°F.)
Vegetable oil cooking spray
Egg wash (1 large egg yolk and 1 tablespoon water combined)
Drain olives and place in a Cuisinart® food processor fitted with the metal blade. Pulse to coarsely chop, about 3 - 4 times. Reserve. Combine milk and egg in a 2-cup glass measure; reserve.
Insert the dough blade and add flour and next four ingredients. Process until combined, about 20 seconds. Scrape side of work bowl if necessary. Add warm water to milk/egg mixture.
With food processor running, pour liquid mixture through the small feed tube in a slow steady stream as fast as the flour will absorb it, about 45 seconds. Once dough cleans the inside of the work bowl and forms a ball, process 45 seconds to knead.
Dough should be easy to handle. Remove from work bowl, divide dough in half and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll each half into a 16 X 8" rectangle and spread half of filling over each piece leaving a 1/2" border on all sides.
Beginning with one long side, roll in a jelly roll fashion, pinching the seam and ends to seal. Curve each into a crescent (half circle). Coat a baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray and place crescents on baking sheet.
With a sharp knife, make cuts halfway through the width of the dough, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Spray a piece of plastic wrap with vegetable oil cooking spray, cover crescents and let rise in a warm draft-free place until doubled in size, about 2
Preheat oven to 375°F. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush crescents with egg wash; bake until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped, about 25 - 28 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Slice each crescent into 12 slices.
